The Best Real Estate firm at Lake Sinclair.... what does that mean... really?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668 GREC# 169695

When I read my local real estate magazine I sometimes snicker because several companies in my area that are branded and have LOTS and LOTS of agents are always copying one another.  Company A writes an ad that says We're # 1 look at our numbers, Company B writes one the next month and says We're # 1 in shortest days on the market for July.  Both of these companies use similar looking graphs to point out who's # 1 for whatever they can figure out they are # 1 for the month in the MLS statistics.

Well frankly, there's only one thing I give a hoot about being # 1 at and it has NOTHING to do with the most homes sold, the shortest days on the market, the most listings last month or any other data that can be found in the MLS.  So what do I strive for Lane Realty to be #1 in accomplishing.  Customer Satisfaction.  I want all of our clients to walk away being ultimately satisfied and knowing that we're different. 

So if you think it would be best for you to buy a house from the agent with the most foreclosures, call me I'll tell you who she is.  And if you want the agent who sold the most, I'll tell you who she is too. But if you want to buy or sell with a firm that wants to offer you the service that will make you want to tell your friends how great your home buying or selling process was, just call me.   Lane Realty isn't the biggest, but we're family and we'll treat you like family too. Our goal will never be to be the biggest, although we're proud of our growth, our goal will always be satisfied clients.  Give us a try, you'll be glad you did.

Tammy, I am not surprised at your attitude. Who is number one is very confusing, and you have certainly decided that customer service is the area you would want to be known as number one. Now somehow that just makes sense to me. Other claims are transient at best, hard to prove and look very self serving, to be honest. But taking care of clients, and doing it well, seems the best attitude to have!

Hi Tony and Darcy- I dreamed about sharks last night... in my lake.  I still want to see the movie though. LOL  (everyone go and read the post)  And it's what's important to me.

Dorie- I rely on folks telling their friends and neighbors we did a GREAT job.

Andrea- Numbers can be manipulated, service... not so much.

Martha- If I were buying or selling a house, I'd want my company

Mona- speaking of which, I have to hire a couple of agents... I had one give the heads up about her retirement plans yesterday.

Frank and Karen- thanks for that.  I'm so excited about the photo frame.  I've purchased a few of them as gifts and never got one for me.  I'll be keeping that. :)  And I do love my clients.

Hi Mary- Thanks.  Today was so exhausting.  I had a brokers open in a huge house.  Must have rest now.

Ann- it's the only way to go in my opinion.

Uh yea - biggest baddest and supposedly bestestest here have their transactions sliced and diced into bits and pieces.  I was writing a post in my head about this last night when I was falling asleep.  These agents don't know if these homes are occupied or on a lockbox and most have not even stepped foot in the house to tell you what the condition is properly.

Pitiful actually.

You are #1 in all categories in my book, Tammy.  If I were moving to central Georgia, I wouldn't bother with all the other ads that brag about stats.  Having 'met' you through ActiveRain, I am SOLD on the quality of your service.  You are the only agent I would work with or recommend to my clients moving to central GA.

PS  I am looking for muddy post of your daughter . . .

June- I think we think a lot alike.

Renee- yes, that really irks me when an agent has SO many listings they can't be bothered to know the details.  Locally we really only have one of those. 

Mary- aren't you sweet?  when will you be moving?    and I was just too tired last night.  I'll go crank up the desk top now and look for that photo.

Gary- yeah they still do... I still have the "box" on the porch at my office and they still disappear every month.  It's about 24 pages instead of 144 like it was a few years ago, but they still read it.
